    Big Yellow Arrows across N. America (now just cement), Old Transcontinental Air Mail Route

  • Ian Francis

    In the 1920s, the US Postal Service built hundreds of lighted navigation beacons to help guide the way from the east to west coast on the first cross-country airmail route. The beacons were decomissioned in the 1940s, and the beacon towers scrapped for metal during World War II, but the giant concrete arrows, some 70 feet long, still populate the US landscape today.
